I suppose we'll never know if the burglars don't admit that they found the house on the newspaper's map. But it sure sounds as though they knew what they were looking for. And really isn't the point that they certainly could have picked this house from the map? The Journal News is defiant in its defense of outing gun owners in this way. No collateral damage is too much when it comes to exposing law-abiding gun owners.
Of all the irrational fear of guns that have come out of Sandy Hook, this newspaper's behavior is among the worst.
